70/-

70 Schilling |  3.5% ABV

Bitterness: Low

A 70 schilling is a traditional Scottish style.  Our example has notes of toast and biscuit with a bit of carmel, nuttiness, and just a hint of fruit.  A very malt focused style with a dry finish.  This beer is flavorful with a low ABV and extremely quaffable!

Bees’ Legacy (Autumn 2019)

Braggot | 10.7% ABV

Bitterness: Low-Med

A braggot is a beer and mead (honeywine) hybrid.  This started as a barleywine ale and then we added 1 and 1/4 lb of local honey per gallon.  This ended up as a nice beverage with flavors and aromas of biscuit, plum, raisin, wildflower fields, nectar, and rooibus tea.  It is warming but the alcohol is well hidden.

Carrie’s Hatchet

Pre-Prohibition Lager | 5.4% ABV

Bitterness: Low

A pre-prohibition lager. It contains some corn to lighten the beer, but is still full flavored. It is comparable to what light lagers would have been prior to prohibition. Carrie’s Hatchet is named in contempt of Carrie Nation. Carrie was an infamous prohibitionist known for attacking bars and their stock with a hatchet.

HopYard29 Hop Harvest 2020 Pale Ale

Wet Hop Pale Ale| 5.3% ABV

Bitterness: Low-Med

We made a field trip out to the HopYard29 hop farm during harvest season.  We pulled some freshly picked Comet hops off the conveyor belt on their way to be dried.  Less than 24 hours later the hops went into this pale ale.  Fresh, undried, unprocessed hops give this beer a distinctly different hop profile that can only be enjoyed once a year!

Last Whistle

Session IPA | 4.5% ABV

Bitterness: Low-Med

This is a session IPA. A session beer (lower alcohol) that tastes like an IPA. A hoppy beer with just enough malt to not taste like hop tea. This one has flavors and aromas of tangerine, orange, pine, and a hint of resin.

Monticello

Founding Father’s Cream Ale | 5.6% ABV

Bitterness: Low

Monticello is Thomas Jefferson’s Plug Nickel recipe named after his estate. It’s a high portion corn and biscuit malt. Dry and crisp with a nice biscuit flavor and a hint of corn sweetness. Celebrate American Independence for more than one day with a pint of a founding father’s beer!

Rabbits Riot

Strawberry Rhubarb Saison | 5.4% ABV

Bitterness: Med

A saison with strawberry and rhubarb. Sweet strawberry combines with tart rhubarb to create a wonderful beer. This beer is over 15% fruit by volume, so expect it to look and taste like it!

Velvet Sledgehammer

 Double India Pale Ale (DIPA) | 8.3% ABV

Bitterness: Med

This double IPA finishes very dry and is not over-the-top bitter. It has some nice tangerine and orange notes along with a bit of pine, resin, and just a touch of dankness. Remember that it is 8.3% ABV or it will hit you like a velvet sledgehammer!
